This is a way of reporting by pictures the ancestral dazzler and all the mysteries revealed to visitors that since 12th century discover this holy and civil buildings. A unique mix of sublime architecture and mysticism finds its place in these magnificent cathedrals: the rising of vaulting, the lighting of stained glass windows and the sculptures’ relieves meet gargoyles’ strong evoking power and the sophistication of hidden religious treasures.

The entire art of cathedrals shows cultural and historical differences: dreamlike sweetness of Romanic art, vital energy of a gothic triumph, late gothic mannerism, flamboyant style’s decadence and baroque exaggeration… The whole European history spreads out in more than 130 buildings in 25 countries. Made of essential icons and unsung treasures, this reportage was born 30 years ago and it is constantly completed by the latest discoveries that make the richness of this European heritage immense.
